'Hike or Bike - Miles to Save Lives in Nepal'
Walk Run or Cycle 5415 miles, the distance between London and Kathmandu, to raise funds to help support the 5 Health Posts, established by the Nestling Trust, as they struggle to reduce the spread of Covid-19 in their local areas, and care for the sick and suffering, as well as providing food for the starving.
Nepal faces a humanitarian crisis. Cases of the Covid-19 Indian variant are spiralling out of control and the fragile Health Service is overwhelmed. Hospitals in the cities are running out of oxygen and are overflowing with people being turned away, and in rural areas thousands have no access to medical care.
Months of lockdown has caused loss of livelihoods and people face starvation.
The Nestling Trust and supporters are combining our miles as we 'hit the Hippy Trail' throughout the month of June - leaving Tower Bridge London on 1/6/21 and hoping to arrive (virtually) at Swayambhunath Stupa in Kathmandu on 30/6/21.
